the standard of conduct is for a chief law enforcement officer. so although the language of the charter seems broad, it -- i mean there's certainly a good argument that it is a single standard. at the same time, it needs to be interpreted -- and is susceptible to being interpreted as a standard that his office-dependent. and again that would require a fact-specific inquiry. you can't decide in advance, without knowing what has happened in a particular case, whether it's misconduct or not misconduct. it depends on the office. >> president chiu: colleagues, follow-up questions. supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: thanks, president chiu. madam city attorney, to follow up on that line of questioning though, on one hand you say it should be easy to determine what is misconduct or not. on the other hand you say it's fact specific. i think commissioner hur's comments does that not invite subjectivity and gets us back to what the question is here, about clear delineation and having security and not the future abuse this potentially in the future, not to say anybody in this room or the current

identifying ways our ethic laws could be strengthened. as supervisors, what if anything would you propose to strength the city's ethics laws. i will start with mr. davis. >> strong ethic laws are essential. what is happening with our sunshine task force and hope davis can speak to this since she recently served on the task force. these need to be strengthened and one problem we have is around enforcement. i would like to see more of the ethical violations of larger committees, some of which are operating, for instance, in some shady areas of law. one was the run he ed run, the committee for mayor ed lee last year and the campaigns that aren't swaying the politics of city, the way the run ed run campaign did. so i think that is one the issues and improving our good government and ethic laws in san francisco. >> miss breed, would you like to address the question? do you want me to repeat it? >> yes. >> sure. a recent chief civil grand jury report, at the request of supervisor campos the city conducted a comparison of laws identifying ways our ethic laws could be strengthened. as su
. legislation that we have before us strengthens an existing law, to restrict this practice known as hotel evasion. in 1981 the passage of the apartment conversion ordinance, which is second, 41-a of the administrative code made it illegal for residential propertis with four or more units to be occupied pore for less than 30 days. unfortunate le what we have found in recent years there has been a problem that has persisted due to enforcement challenges and a loophole in the law. in recent years we have seen many corporations sidestep this law by signing long-term loiss with property owner ises that their non-san franciscan employees can use the apartment as short-term corporate housing or tourism residential housing. so for example, as an example, in my district, the tenants at the large golden gateway [kph-efpl/] have experienced corporate employees and guests that come in and out of their buildings just like a hotel. based on rent board record there's are an estimate of dozens of these units that are leased by corporate entities. this not only creates quality of life issues for neighbors
line. there are many bright lines in the law. now again not every law is susceptible to a bright line but by and large i think it does benefit the public when the laws are clear so that they can easily be followed. >> supervisor cohen: thank you. >> president chiu: supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: you somewhat addressed this already when you said that it may be challenging for you to address the actual relationship to the office that was determined by the majority of the commission, but since you were sent to represent the commission i thought i would ask, so having read the transcripts several times actually the one question that was not answered to me is what exactly is the relationship to the office? i heard a couple of examples such as the sheriff runs our domestic violence programs and he committed an act of domestic violence. from your understanding of the majority of the commission is that the relationship, or was there another kind of clear delineation of what that relationship to the office was, for specifically counts 4 and 5? >> supervisor kim, i think that was the relati
to suspend the sheriff was without basis in the law and why you must ultimately reinstate the sheriff. ross mirkarimi campaigned on the power of redemption. he's been a key proponent of restorative justice in this city. but there is no question that on december 31st, 2011, ross mirkarimi made a serious and terrible mistake. and how did he deal with that mistake? he immediately apologized to his wife. he entered into counseling. he apologized to the people of san francisco. he pled guilty to a criminal offense. all of that underscores the responsibility that rossq]j terrible mistake that he made on new year's eve last year. and as a result of that mistake, several months from his wife and son. he was suspended without pay, with no means to provide for hi family. his entire life's work was destroyed almost in an instant. he's beenwácf described by the r and the mayor's attorneys with the most inflammatory and prejudicial rhetoric, yet at the end of the day, the punishment does not fit theyxúw crime. this afternoon, i'm going to spend a fe7%g minutes telling u about why this case is differ
evening, professor almondover. he joined the uc davis school of law in 2004, following a clerkship with judge cal braise of the united states court of appeals for the second circuit. interest include election law, administrative law, statutory interpretation, constitutional law and property and natural resources law. he is a resident of san francisco's mission district. we are honored to work chris almendorf. [ applause ] >> thank you very much and thank you to all of the candidates who are here today. we're very fortunate to be joined by six candidates and what i hope will soon be seven. all of the candidates have agreed to ask their supporters to be respectful of other candidates and the audience and to maintain quiet during the forum. i ask you to respect that commitment. every aspect of this forum will be equally fair to all participating candidates. as everyone here knows candidate debates are often limited to latitudinal appears and personal attack. our debate focuses on critical areas of policy disagreement among the leading candidates. so this end the league of women voter
, neither the sheriff, supervisor, or any elected official is above the the law. however, what we also have the opportunity to demonstrate is that serving in one of these positions does not deem a person unworthy of redemption. to declare public officials don't deserve second chances goes against we are as a city. personal conduct from the previous mayor on do unto civil servants. we have been open minded by allowing people with criminal records to reengage with society responsibly and be accountable for their actions. whether a public official or a public servant, a member of the board or a member of the public, we all deserve the opportunity to bring about positive changes. finally, sheriff mirkarimi made an egregious mistake, one that has had serious personal professional and legal consequences. his actions were un undeniably wrong and has taken treatments toward court mandated resolution. however based on instructions provided to my by voters of san francisco through the charter i cannot find that his actions were
as a little bit being dragged over a wooden fence? because that's what happened to me. i don't have a law degree like many of you do but i believe my constitutional right under the law has been violated because someone involved in this case got two days in court for allegations that were nowhere near what happened to me. i want to know why gina flores was given two days in court. i'm here to support reinstatement of ross mirkarimi. because we need his leadership yesterday. i want to ask a question perhaps to invoke a little bit of humor. i wonder who is the biggest liar, mayor edwin lee, the san francisco chronicle, or mitt romney. >> president chiu: next speaker please. >> hi. my name is kathy black, executive director ofwc]%u la ca de los madres. the facts matter.41q$ the sheriff admitting a violent act against his wife.#[t he pled guilty to false imprisonment in a domestic violence quais. we have not been surprised by the minimize of the injury and unwillingness to takeÑ2 responsibility and blaming others. in front of you today we stand for victim(abq safety. it is also up to us to
is the top law enforcement officer and also responsible for handling domestic violence programs within the county. now the commission believed -- the majority believed that while there was some room for debate as to whether this conduct or decency clause is limited by the relations to the duties clause, they found that it didn't matter. ultimately whether or not the decency clause is related to the duties of office in this case official misconduct had been shown. now, i've looked at this charter provision quite a bit so when i say things like conduct, clause, and decency clause, they mean something. perhaps -- not sure how much you all have looked at it. so i am going to borrow a definition that the parties ultimately agreed to, and this is a handout actually that i believe the mayor may have created. so this is the language of 15105e, but broken down in a way to identify theirs clauses within that section. it reads, official misconduct means any wrongful behavior by a public officer in relation to the duties of his or her office, wilful in its character including -- in the actual prov
this decision to assure the public that i am aware of the long-lasting impacts there will be on the law, the sheriff, and his family. the community of domestic violence prevention advocates, the over all moral of the city and county of san francisco now and in the future. whatever the outcome my hope is that all of us, as residents of this city, will use this as an opportunity to fine-tune our moral compass, to lean more toward honor, nobility, justice and compassion. with that said, i think it is important to note the process that i went through in evaluating the issue. when determining whether to sustain the charges as issued by the mayor, and recommended by the ethics commission i worked backwards. i thought of it in the context of, in order to remove the sheriff, what would be necessary. and in my opinion, the removal of any elected official from office requires that the mayor supply evidence that demonstrates with great certainty that the charter prescribed definition of official misconduct was violated. so thes
to enact laura's law and mr. dufty is working on that and finding housing for these individuals but not to keep going back to the economy but one solution is improve the economy so we can improve these people's lives. thank you. >> thank you. >> l the homeless problem it's very, very interesting because you know some cities don't -- i think one of the reasons we do have a problem is because of the wonderful social services that we have here in this city and unfortunately as someone who has sat on several committees it's disheartening that just across the east bay, even if you go to oakland, it changes drastically and i think it's one of the reasons people come to san francisco. do they all live here? absolutely not. and i think we have to get tough with this issue and the housing authority truly needs some restructuring, so that they can do their mandate which is to house people because that's another issue, but there is money missing there, so i think we have to be tough with that and it's like tough love but because we do care and it's going have to be dealt with. thank you
? >> no. if you take a look at the gun laws we have, i don't even think president obama is proposing more gun laws. we have to make sure we enforce our laws. we have laws that aren't being properly enforced. but the best thing to help prevent violent crime in inner cities is to bring opportunity in inner cities. is to help teach people good discipline, good character. that is civil society. that's what charities and churches do to help one another make sure they can realize the value in one another. >> you can do that by cutting taxes? >> those are your words, not mine. >> thank you very much, sir. >> that was kind of strange. trying to stuff words in people's mouths? >> it it sounds like you're -- >> ryan folks putting the paper in front of the camera and everything. vice presidential nominee paul ryan getting annoyed in this interview with terry camp in flint, michigan. the campaign even after the interview was over still went out of their way to trash the reporter that paul ryan walked out of that interview on. the campaign given on the record quotes calling
marriage alliance pushed for a voter referendum on the state's same-sex marriage law just days after it was signed into law. >> i just reject the argument that those of us who oppose it are bigotry or hateful. it's not any of that. we love god and we have a responsibility to stand up for what is right. >> same-sex marriage supporters are also standing up to baltimore ravens linebacker brendan bodasia. he's the latest big name to support the law. he says the vote is a vote for equality across the state and the country. the referendum will appear as question 6 on the ballot. early voting begins october 27. tuesday october 16 is the deadline to register to vote in maryland. >>> former d.c. council chair kwame brown has been placed under a curfew in order to make weekly visits with court officials. the order came after brown failed to make three required phone calls. he resigned last june after pleading guilty to bank fraud and a misdemeanor campaign finance violation. he was warned not to, quote, tempt fate. >>> howard brooks is scheduled to be sentenced today. he was the former campaig
and kelly stand on, a constitutional law attorney. welcome to you both. fred, i'm going to start with you. you might think that the court should rule in favor of the university of texas, which is fighting to keep these racial preferences. why is that? >> well, i'm not advocating one decision or another. if you look at supreme court questioning going back to 2000 and three race can be a factor in determining admission. in this case, i think for the university of texas, the majority of the students at the university of texas at intercampus if they are in the top 10% of their graduating class because of the way that the schools are set up. that leads to diversity. gerri: okay, all right, maybe. let's talk to kelly. you just said that justice should be blind and there may be more effective ways of getting some balance and student body than having the government come in and order that it do so. how is that? >> well, you know there are scenes that are considered socioeconomic. therefore, they are in different schools and university of texas has advocated that this is to help middle and upper cl

proceeding, this is not a court of law.q9j)Ñ if there's any parallel, it's probably an impeachment president bill clinton. i think most of the people in this rg÷yñ and most of you would agree we saw how that process was terribly abused because ofh0 where a personal -- a repugnant was suddenly put into the national limelight and made into something that basicallye"o kidnapped the entire country. i think in some ways this is what's going on here. i'll tell you why. because it's not like this is the first time we've had a high public official98v that's been engaged in domestic violence. in fact, i did a little bit ofq research and, you know, there mcbride who was arrested and charged with domestic violence, entered a6e=f plea like ross mirkarimi did, was sentenced, yet he continued as a judge. by his colleagues to be presiding judge and continues to serve on the bench to this-çÑx( day. or how about the case of hayes-white. i have cued up on my phone the youtube videoqq;$ audio of the 1 call where her husband is calling in about domestic violence which i don't have it play for you. but the

, starting in 1996. there hasn't been -- the law has not changed one iota since i served on the commission. and during those years, we heard many cases of alleged official misconduct. but the reason you haven't heard about most of them is because we were instructed as follows, by both city attorney louise rene and herrera which is opposed to what the city attorney is claiming was the law in this case. we were instructed, unless the commission has found probable cause to believe that a provision of the charter or city ordinances relating to campaign finance, lobbying, conflicts of interest, or governmental ethics has been violated, the regulations are clear thati.z further action may be taken by the commission. he goes on to state, the charter does not2xi?y authorize the commission to impose any type of public censure upon individuals who have not committed a violation within the jurisdiction of the ethics commission. the ethics commission only has jurisdiction over thegg6.ñ local campaign and governmental conduct code. it does not have jurisdiction political reform act and definitely incl
who uphold and respects the law, as we are also expected to do so. there have been a string of recent domestic violence incidents in the media regarding high profile individuals who have been able to avoid harsh punishment. as a city, we must stand and make a statement that anyone, especially elected officials, will be held accountable for their actions. let us not forget, he did plead guilty to a crime. as a city, we must realize that the sheriff is a -- of his department. mirkarimi is seen as the leading example for his department and his employees. we deserve to be able to trust and respect our law enforcement officers. victims of domestic violence have the right to be protected by the sheriff's department without fear that our issues will be taken lightly. by removing sheriff ross mirkarimi from the board -- i'm sorry, from office, the board of supervisors will affirm and ensure that any official will be accountable to the public they serve, and exhibit an appropriate standard of conduct. please make the right decision for the san francisco residents you serve, and vote for the re
